MCC 4Cs Sessions Begin September 29

Dive Deeper into the MCC 4C’s

Look and ‘C’ Sessions Begin Monday, September 29th in the CTL

Not sure what the MCC 4′s are and want to learn more? Ready to use the C’s, but not sure which ‘C’ aligns with your course? Want to see examples of how faculty plan to assess MCC’s 4Cs in their courses? Do you want to participate in SOC’s assessment pilot this spring? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should attend one of the Look and ‘C’ Sessions beginning Monday, September 29th in the MCC Center for Teaching & Learning.

4C’s? What are those?

Through the leadership of the Student Outcomes Committee, MCC has adopted Institutional Student Learning Outcomes, the MCC 4C’s, that are consistent with the Vision, Mission, and Values of Mesa Community College and reflect our commitment to Individuals and Community, Innovation, Integrity, Learning, and Service Excellence. These 4C’s are  CommunicationCivic EngagementCritical Thinking, and Cultural & Global Engagement. All faculty are encouraged to incorporate the C’s into their courses.

This Fall you will get a chance to dive deeper into each of these Learning Outcomes at a special Look and ‘C’ Session. Sessions will be presented by members of the SOC Committee and by faculty who are incorporating one or more of the 4C’s into their courses. Participants in the hands-on sessions will walk away with an in depth knowledge of each ‘C’ including the criterion and scoring rubrics. Additionally participants will get a chance to see the each ‘C’ in action and to brainstorm ideas for adding an aligned activity, assignment or project to one of the outcomes.
